tage while Groffsky, although he
had his poorest scoring night in
quite a while, held down Gar-
maker's scoring when he was
guarding the Gopher ace besides
rebounding well.
Michigan's Bruce Allen, who
helped the losers attack with two
fielders, picked up five fouls in
what should be close to record
time. The 6-5 forward entered at
1:55 of the third quarter and with
10 seconds gone in the fourth, was

"As good as our performances
were, we have only ourselves to
blame for losing."
Coach Don Canham made no ex-
cuses for his Wolverine thinclads
as he discussed Saturday's dual
meet in which. Michigan's bid to
upset the mighty Illini fell just
short when Illinois scored a sur-
prise victory in the final mile re-
lay event.
* * *
DESPITE THE fact that the
Maize and Blue quartet turned in
a time of 3:18.8, the second fast-
est ever recorded by a Michigan
team, Canham was plainly disap-
pointed in the individual perform-
ances of his star-studded four-
some.
The Wolverine coach felt that,
except for the performance of
anchorman Grant Scruggs, who
ran a sparkling :47.9 quarter in
his losing dual with Ralph Fes-
senden, the relay team was "not
up to its potential."
For the most part, though, Can-
ham was more than pleased with
the showing of his squad.
SOPHOMORE Pete Grey ran the
fastest half mile ever clocked in-
doors by an American sophomore
to hit the tape in a dead heat
with Illinois' Conference champ
Gene Maynard. Their record time
was 1:52.4.
Especially encouraging was the
return to form of the indoor mile
titlist John Ross, who had been
disappointing in every previous
meet. The Wolverine senior won
the mile in 4:13.9, even though
not pushed, and then came back
to run an excellent half mile,
finishing on the heels of Grey
and Maynard.
"Every year it's the same thing,"
remarked Canham. Guys like Grey
and Ross turn in their greatest
performances when the competi-
tion gets toughest."

JOHN MOULE ran a 4:14.4 mile,
the fastest indoors of his life,
sophomore Mark Booth hit 6' 5%",

AP Poll Lead
NEW YORK-(W) -DuQuesne's
unbeaten cage squad remained on
top in the Associated Press poll
of sports writers and sports-cast-
ers as college basketball heads into
the final stages leading to tourna-
ment play.
DuQuesne received 38 first place
votes ,out of 128 cast, and 934
points on the basis of 10 for first,
nine for second, etc. Kentucky, in
second place, received 27 firsts and

only to lose the high jump to Ron
Mitchell's leap of 6' 7%", and John
Vallortigara tied Illinois' Joe Cor-
ley for second place behind Willie
Williams in the 60 yard dash.
Williams is defending Big Ten
titlist while Corley took second last
year.
Junior Stielstra got off the best
broad jump of his career to win
that event with 23' 4", while Hen-
dricks leaped 23 feet for the third
week in a row.
Roger Maugh turned in another
top performance as he hit 13 feet*
for the third straight week.

Michigan's hockey team is back
in the driver's seat in its bid for'
a berth in the NCAA champion-
ships at Colorado Springs.
The scoreless deadlock with
Michigan State last Friday and
Saturday's 3-2 victory, coupled
with twin defeats of North Dakota
by Colorado College, has put the
Wolverine sextet in a position
where only a tie game with Min-
nesota is needed to clinch a spot
in the playoffs.
EVEN if the Wolverines lose
two games to the Gophers this
week-end and North Dakota goes
on to win its two remaining con-
tests with Michigan State, the re-
sult would be a tie for second place
in the standings.
In that case, a special vote
would be held to determine who
would get the bid. As of now
Michigan would get the nod if
the "Goals Scored" column of
the standings is the deciding
factor for the Wolverines are
currently leading in that depart-
ment by nine goals. On the oth-
er hand, the Nodaks might get
the nod by virtue of their two
victories over Michigan earlier
in the season.
Minnesota is still in the most
enviable position, however. Two
victories over lowly Michigan Tech
has lifted the Gophers into a first
place tie with the Maize and Blue
sextet and depending on the out-
come of last night's game with
Denver, the Gophers might be out
in front to stay.
* * *
TONIGHT the Gophers battle
the Pioneers again before coming
into Ann Arbor for two games this
week-end. Minnesota has already

sewed up a bid to the playoffs, and
needs only victory out of four, in-
cluding last night's contest, to
clinch at least a share of first place
in the league standings.
North Dakota, who could have
breezed in by dumping Colorado
College and then Michigan
State, has now assumed the role
of the underdog, a position
which the Wolverines held up
until yesterday.
The Nodaks, a consistently poor
road club, lived up to their repu-
tation, as Cheddy Thompson's
hustling Tigers handed the invad-
ers 5-3 and 2-1 setbacks. Friday
night the Bengals overcame a 3-2
North Dakota lead with three goals
in the final period to win going
away.
* * *
WHILE North Dakota was bat-
tling in a losing cause out west,
the Wolverines were having trou-
bles of their own. Vic Heyliger's
crew escaped the hectic week-end
series with the East Lansing sex-
tet in far better position than they
had expected when Friday night's
hair-raising 0-0 deadlock was over.
Desperately needing a victory Sat-
urday night to keep alive what
appeared to be fading hopes, the
Maize and Blue puckmen twice
overcame Spartan leads to eke out
the narrow 3-2 win.
Captain Jim Haas' goal at

9:46 of the second period was
the first Michigan tally in more
than five complete periods of
play. Between his goal and the
one preceeding it, Doug Mul-
len's at 16:48 of the third period
against Colorado College last
Tuesday, the Wolverine attack
has brought nothing but frustra-
tion for 102 minutes and 58 sec-
onds of play.
In Friday's game especially the
Wolverines were firing everything
but the referee at State goalie Ed
Schiller, but they just couldn't
dent the Spartan netminder,
* * *
EQUALLY great was Wolverine
"Ike" Ikola who continued his
sensational play of late. When
Spartan Gordon King scored the
first goal Saturday night it was
the first time he had been beat-
en in 120 minutes and 37 seconds.
He had not allowed a goal since
early in the second period against
Colorado.
This week could definitely sew
up matters for the Wolverines as
far as the NCAA playoffs are con-
cerned. At least a tie is needed to
clinch it, but the Wolverines will
be out to hand the Gophers a pre-
view of what they would like to
do to them again, if they meetsout
west.

Despite a weak start and a crip-
pling ineligibility, Newt Loken's
Michigan gymnasts have appar-
ently found their stride, appear-
ing stronger with each succeed-
ing meet.
The Wolverines have now won
two meets in a row, and four out
of their last six, the most recent
win being a lopsided 64-32 win
over Ohio State last Saturday at
the Sports Building.
LOKEN IS bringing his squad
along carefully, building it toward
the conference meet to be held
March 12th and 13th in Columbus.
Despite the vacancy left by for-
mer Big Ten parallel bars cham-
pion Harry Luchs due to ineligi-
bility, and losses to a powerhouse
Illinois team and a youthful Iowa
squad, Michigan's conference meet
outlook is bright.
Saturday's meet was an all
veteran show, with Mary John-
son, the amiable Wolverine cap-
tain, putting on a brilliant dis-
play of gymnastic ability. John-
son took honors in the high bar,
parallel bars and flying rings
events, and also added a fourth
and a second place tie to his
laurels, totaling 22 points for
the afternoon.
The good showing of senior Lee
Krumbholz who won the side
horse for the Wolverines, and also
polled two second place finishes,
a third, and a fifth, was another
decisive factor in Michigan's win.
These performances gave Krumb-
holz 18 points for the day, and
showed indications of a possible
conference side horse champion-
ship.
SUCH SPECIALISTS as side-
horse ace Jim Barbero, Dick Berg-
man on the flying rings, and the
Jim Fox-Bill Winkler duo on the
trampoline are more reasons why
Michigan will give defending
champion Illinois a fight for the
Big Ten gymnastic crown.

Barbero, back from a selective
service absence, is a consistent
third place man on the horse,
while Bergman is improving stead-
ily on the rings. Bergman's thrill-
ing double fly-away Saturday,
executed by him for the first time,
is certainly adequate proof of his
improvement.
Winkler and Fox add the much
needed depth on the trampoline,
behind the durable Frank Adams,
who is number one man on both
the tramp and in tumbling.
